Our Middle School Department came up with a cool idea for their events – they want the kids to take photos & videos with their cameras & cell phones, then somehow collect all the media centrally & edit it together to make a presentation when the event is over. Personally, I love the idea and want to make it happen today! But I do have some questions for those who have done this before or just know more about this than us. So here’s some random statements and questions:
- My initial thought was to create a Flickr account & pass out the username/password combo to everyone. Of course we’d monitor it and change the password once we had a good collection. But is that easy enough? Can most phones today connect to Flickr?
- What about just an email account? I worry that videos might be a problem for that?
- Is there something out there that works for both photos & videos that is SUPER easy to explain and works with phone & email?
So if you wouldn’t mind sharing your thoughts, ideas, expertice, I would really appreciate it!
